Thousands returned to the streets of Tirana for the 2nd day of protests after the 25-year-old Klodian Rasha was murdered by police for buying cigarettes past curfew. Several fires were set and many barricades were burnt, with far more violent clashes with police occurring. Tear gas was deployed, as well as police brutality including the use of rubber bullets and tear gas.
Thousands of students gathered in Thessaloniki and marched against a new law which would restore police to university campuses across Greece for the first time since the fall of the military dictatorship. Clashes ensued after police deployed tear gas on protesters, with Molotov cocktails flying through the air and firebombs used against law enforcement. After finishing the march in spite of chemical weapons being used on protesters, the students returned for an afternoon march against state repression.
